Research
  1. Scoring system of testicular torsion in children –There is a growing reliance on ultrasounds and other diagnostic tests for diagnosis and this leads to a higher false negatives and false positives. We have identified clinical factors that identify patients with testicular torsion better (please see presentation number 10 in the presentation section) and using this model we aim to create a scoring method that can be utilized for diagnosis of testicular torsion.
  2. Renal ischemia and reperfusion injury – Injury to kidneys due to lack of blood supply (Ischemic injury) happens in many clinical models including trauma, renal transplantation and in patients undergoing partial nephrectomy. I have obtained a grant from the ECRIP (Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program) of New York state health department to look into biochemical and extracellular protein changes that occur during renal ischemia. The project I have set up is ongoing in North Shore LIJ health system.
  3. VUR Index – construct a nomographic index to predict resolution of vesicoureteral reflux including all variables including BBD, age, sex and grade, laterality and others. Data collection in progress
  4. Demographic changes in spina bifida and its influence care provision and utilization - aims to look at the influence of race and socioeconomic status in diagnosis, prevention and treatment of spina bifida in the state of Georgia
  5. Impact of internet search protocols on physician profile in the internet and its impact on physician grading and assessment. What physicians can do to improve their profile on the net to project themselves better to their patients
